The state Duma adopted in the first reading a bill that maintains for pensioners of the benefits for property taxes.

Under the project, the Federal benefits for land tax and property tax for pensioners will remain after raising the retirement age.

Benefits will be granted are not «in connection with the retirement, and when it reaches the current retirement age,» said Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova. This will provide benefits to women over 55 years, men — 60 years.

It is noted that the bill aims to provide additional social guarantees to citizens in connection with the forthcoming phased increase in the retirement age.

Now according to the General rules women can retire from 55 years, men — 60 years. In September, the state Duma adopted a law to increase starting in 2019, the retirement age for women to 60 years for men to 65 years.

Initially, the government proposed to raise the retirement age for women to 63 years, however, Putin offered the less radical option — only up to 60 years. The President also called for the preservation of the benefits of the existing borders of retirement age (55 for women and 60 for men).
